Forest Should Be Investigated Says Swansea

Forest Should Be Investigated Says Swansea

South Wales clubs Cardiff City and Swansea City says the Football League should investigate Nottingham Forest for attempting to tap up their players, as they hope to sign Peter Whittingham and Darren Pratley.

"The football league won't investigate unless there's a complaint, Jenkins says maybe we can team up with Cardiff to complain, we don't need Cardiff to hold our hand to do this"

HAVE YOUR SAY
Nottingham Forest's chief executive Mark Arthur has made an audacious claim this weekend that both of their targeted players want to join the club. Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says the Football League should look into these claims, where as Bluebirds manager Dave Jones says it's a disgrace.

Mark Arthur believes the two players have rejected new contracts at their respective clubs - matters that don't concern him and those he shouldn't be revealing to the press.

They've offered him [Pratley] a new contract and apparently he has turned it down and again we understand he is very keen to come and play for us.

'Swansea have to make a decision. This time last year they went blind with Leon Britton and he ran down his contract and do they want to do exactly the same with Darren Pratley? And only Swansea can answer that.'


Huw Jenkins told BBC Sport:

'It is not right, it is not within the rules and laws of the game,'

'And I think we should look at it a bit further. Perhaps ourselves and Cardiff can team up and protect our clubs a little bit.'

'It is an absolutely astonishing statement to make by somebody in Mark's position,'

'They are obviously not getting the answers they want and are trying any tactic they want to try and get what they want which is very, very disappointing.

'But we are still talking to Darren and his agent about extending his contract.'


Our South Wales rivals Cardiff City were equally as annoyed as we were with his claims, manager Dave Jones said:

'He has no right to say it,'

'And he should go though the proper channels to say it rather than through the media, spouting off that our my player is unhappy.

'If he is talking to Whitts on that score, it must be his brother because that is not Whitts is telling me.

'We've put an offer to Peter Whittingham and his stance is he wants to see what happens here, whether the club wants to move forward.

'Now he has those reassurances, now we can go back to him and can start the negotiations again.

you can't get more blatant than that when tapping up players, it's a disgrace and we should make an official complaint to the FL.

Okay Jacks/Blues may have rivalries, but it's great to see us both unite against a common enemy.
